Hi All,

I wonder how folks adjust finger sticks for BG readings on callused fingers. Do you just poke deeper or some fingers are not usable due to calluses.

My daughter is T1 and she tests 7-8 times a day.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

I don't test on my fretting hand.

I am testing only on my right hand. (I am right handed)... And even on right hand I test all over not just on the tip of finger like we were told (also ob both sides).

I don't test on my fretting hand either.

oh I missed your replies BM. best wishes m8!

seems no one answereared your message. I am real sorry for that. Musicians all seem to busy!

Once I started playing again I just took the blood from anywhere. Side of fingers is fine and in fact better as you dont have to worry about blood smudges on stuff! Hope it helps and give me a message any time!

i use the Delica Lancet with their 33g Extra Fine lances and they are awesome. And yes i test on fret hand too.


i set the testing depth to 3... it goes from 1 to 10.
